RE: Obsolete and/or Useless Talents
I can do basic arithmetic without a calculator (and up to a point, without pencil and paper). Years ago, I knew how to use a slide rule. I have forgotten the details, but I could pick it up again pretty quickly if I had to.

I can also do the Vulcan hand sign -- absolutely useless, but many people can't do it, and I can, so there!

I can sew...hand and machine. No one much seems to care any more. Undecided

Every amateur theater group cares. Yes

You would be warmly received by them.

RE: Obsolete and/or Useless Talents
I can tell you that the color of your notebook is blue, in Spanish. Learned that 30 years ago in 7th grade.
I can still remember how to make a whopper from my days working at Burger King, when I was a teenager.
I type 93 words per minute.

And this isn't useless or obsolete but I am tri-lingual. I speak Italian (I can't read or write it though), English and I use American Sign Language
